Community Leaders Meeting on April 26th with Mayor Fuller

This message was sent to LWVN from Mayor Fuller’s office:

Mayor Fuller recently announced the formation of “The Village People” and we’d like to invite you to join us to a meeting on Thursday, April 26 at 7 pm at the Post 440.  We’re looking for help spreading the word, so please feel free to forward this invitation far and wide!

Here is more background from the Mayor:

I am excited to announce the formation of a group we’re affectionately calling “The Village People.”  With the help of several community leaders (e.g., Terry Sauro, John Rice, Jerry Reilly) who have enriched our city through events such as village days and other community-based initiatives, we’re hoping to bring community-minded folks together a few times a year to brainstorm, share best practices, and generally cross-pollinate.

We invite both wily veteran event organizers and anyone with a spark of an idea in its embryonic stages to join us at our first meeting on Thursday, April 26th at 7:00 p.m. at the American Legion Nonantum Post 440, 295 California Street. 

We don’t exactly know how many folks will join us for our first meeting…if you plan to attend, it might be handy for us to know ahead of time so we can plan our agenda accordingly.  Please RSVP to Dana at dhanson@newtonma.gov if you plan to join us or if you would like to be included on our mailing list going forward.  (If you can’t RSVP now but are inspired to drop in at the last minute, by all means please do!)

Questions or comments?  Please let Dana or the other Village People coordinating team members below know.

Looking forward to working with all of our fantastic Village People in this city!

The Village People

Maria Arvelo, Lois Dominique, Gloria Gavris, Dana Hanson, Emily Prenner, Jerry Reilly, John Rice, Terry Sauro, Rebika Shaw Bendayan
